Don't let filing multiple W-2s scare you

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 7.5 million Americans had more than one job in 2016, and the number is increasing. Add in those who changed jobs, and you have quite a few people who find themselves with two or more W-2s at tax time.

Fear not! If you use TurboTax, entering more than one W-2 is easy. You may be able to import your W-2 directly from each employer by entering the Employer ID Number (EIN) from Box – b on your form. You can also enter your W-2s in the Wages & Income section of TurboTax. TurboTax will simply ask you: “Do you have another W-2 to enter?” Click yes, and you're on your way. You can also jump start your taxes by snapping a photo of your W-2 with the TurboTax mobile app.

When you have more than one job, be sure to check that you are withholding the right amount of taxes, especially with the new tax reform law that impacts 2018 taxes that you file in 2019. If you had two jobs in 2017 but not at the same time, say one for 5 months, a layoff, and the next job for 6 months, your withholding was probably enough, as the amount withheld was based on two jobs held at two different times the entire year. On the other hand, if you have two jobs concurrently, there's a chance you may need to have more taxes withheld since you have dual income.
